I'm going to cut to the chase
There is an old Ninjago set called the Skull motorbike, the SM is the same price, but this set is WAAAY better, LEGO really nailed it with these new Ninjago sets. The new ninjas are awesome, especially Kai.
And Rattla (The snake dude) is very cool too.
Bike is awesome
Worth every penny
Bike a little breakable
Shrine too small.
Other than that, this is an awesome set and I recommend it!
This is by far one of the best sets of all time. This was my first Rise of the Snakes set, and a good one too. Amazingly, the only ninja minifigures I had at the end of the first set was Cole DX without his scythe.
The minifigures are incredibly detailed with Rattla getting down to the very tip of his fang. Kai's armor also has a sword holder on the back with two openings, so for the very first time, a ninja can hold two swords on his back. The weapons are two black katanas, a plain black spear, and i'm not sure if this is a weapon, but the Hypnobrai staff.
In case anybody was wondering, the four first tribes are the Hypnobrai, the Fangpyre, the Venomari, and the Constrictai.
The motorcycle itself only has six seperate blades on it, and uses lots of stickers, which I don't know why everybody complains about. The motorcycle also has a flip function, so when you press on a lego brick, the side blades pop out. If you want to take this apart piece by piece, you might have trouble.
this was a very awesome set. it was fun to build and fun to play with.
the new Kai ZX and Rattla
the details on the minifig
new pieces (ex: the golden stuff)
stickers (i dont like them they go of very easly)
Kai is sitting too long back in the motorcycle (in a real motorcycle prespective)
sorry for my bad english anyways awesome set a total buy.
The only part I had trouble on was something by the back tires, but it is a great set for ninjago starters. The blade attack function work very well. The Kai ZX minifigure is very cool and he even has 2 swords! Rattla is a great serpentine minifgure. I give it an 8 out of 10.
